    Hey, I have a Getzen 700 externa II and it has a rubber stopper under the 1st valve. When I play the rubber comes up and sticks to my valve. I was wondering is there any way to make it stay down.

    Call Getzen and order a new one. Yours is just plain worn out and therefore does not stay in place.

    Thanks, I didn't know if it was the rubber or if there was something adhesive that was holding it in place.

    This might be obvious but I thought I'd mention it. Do all three valves not just the first one.

    I took it to a shop and they said the valve rubber padding looks ok. Its only the first valves padding that keeps coming up. I wonder if getzen has something adhesive that can help it stay down?

    Just use a bit of contact cement. It doesn't have to be much. Just enough to keep it down.

    I don't want to put anything on my instrument that will damage it.
